I'm looking for potential hazards of trimethylborazine (CAS 1004-35-9). I can't seem to find any, but some people claim that it is explosive or so. Any pointers ?

thanks!

Thanks. It's what I thought, but before I order it, I wanted to get an idea where I put my feet :smile:

Something seems to be a little bit off on the page cronxeh linked to - while the upper part states trimethylborazine, desciption below states just borazine.

Don't know what the particular law is where you are, Vanesch, but in North America the vendor must give you anhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Material_safety_data_sheet" [Broken]on request, which will disclose any hazards, as well as physical properties.

According to Wiki, these documents are called http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Risk_and_Safety_Statements" [Broken]. But I'm not sure if the vendors are required to supply them; I'd request one when you order it.

Yes. In the mean time, I've found some publications where people talk about the advantages of using TMB because "at least it isn't a toxic or explosive liquid"...

On the other hand, I thought that borazine itself was pretty explosive...

In fact, the point is, I want to do something with it, but my boss warned me that he doesn't want "a crazy experiment which puts people at danger" and if I can't make my case about the safety even before ordering the stuff, he'll stop me right there. What I want to do, others have done similar things, but with much more dangerous stuff.
